How do you personally deal with receiving racism as an Asian person?

It’s been a long time since I got racist remarks thrown at me, but I know that it can be a traumatizing experience. Growing up as an Asian in America, I’m already accustomed to seeing racism against Asians.

But for people from Asian countries who visit Western countries, I wonder if such experiences are relatively more painful.

I hope that those affected by racism can find some solace in the fact that you’re not alone and that there’s nothing wrong with you.

    I don’t think I’ve ever experienced it since I’ve been living in my home country for most of my lifetime. And also for 3 months in Toronto, I didn’t get to have any racism experiences, and I’ve stayed in the US at my girlfriend’s, whose background is Mexico. Only once, her brother said some Japanese words to me, and he right after apologized me as saying it would be a little funny but he right away regretted it 🤔 Maybe I’ve never lived in any of western countries for such a long period of time like you, so I’ve never gotten to experience yet. But if I ever received it, I don’t know how to react to it since I don’t wanna make the situation worse and also many people recommend ignoring it so..

    Racism towards Asians in America is the worst on Earth. Especially after the thing came up weeks back in China. However, this circumstances is very natural, Americans awareness against harmful things are extremely high. They don't mean to bully Asian people, they are also people who also have fears. So, 加油 brother. This hurtful situation is only temporary, and will pass eventually.

    When I studied in France... there were a lot of jokes on Asian... I didn't feel funny at all and it made me crazy sometimes because it was very racist.... I tried to tell myself that there were just so ignorant, and almost of them were nice with us... but I didn't like reading the french news paper when where was news about the china....

    I used to live in 🇮🇪 and I had an unpleasant experience when i work as part -time waitress in a restaurant. Once A lady was so rude and point me with her finger said you don’t understand what I said go away! Go home ! I was so upset and cry that day . But with time I understand I cannot stop some people do have prejudice or racism on Asian person . So I am not stay quite and say nothing when it happen again. I am proud of being a Chinese and proud of who I am. But I barely was treat badly in a racist way , most people I met are nice in Europe . At least we can see a good side of people! 加油! 做强大的你自己 😉✊🏻💪🏻

    My experience, the most racist towards me is from another Asian group or even Chinese ( I am a Chinese), like those hkers, twers...the other races, like white or black or Latino, not a single one. (I lived in the UK, Canada, and La before.)

    In recent years, the Ministry of political corruption and national security of China, together with the Ministry of public security of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, has taken advantage of the satellite positioning electromagnetic infrasound rays to absorb the brain location of the citizen population remotely, and then sent signals to the brain of the tester to carry out the experiment of remote control of the cruel spirit of the human body. The tester will be attacked by the radioactive radiation to carry out the inhuman human body experiment until he died of illness Countless victims died in this horrible experiment, and they were put on the hat of mental illness. We hope that the masses will pay attention to it and understand the unknown state secrets. Baidu records that people are doing it and heaven is watching it

    在哪里都有种族歧视,包括自己国家的人歧视不同地区的人,这个应该跟教育程度和世界观有关

    There are various types of racist experiences here. Some between Asians and non-Asians, and some between Asians. There’s not really a panacea that addresses those social problems, but I think it’s important for societies to encourage people to cultivate empathy especially towards those whom are likely to be dehumanized.
